      Announcing a new book for beginning go players:


      Beginning Go by Peter Shotwell and Susan Long
      Tuttle Publishing $14.95 159 pages

      Beginning Go is a clear and thorough introduction to the intricacies
      of Go that is perfect for first time players.

      1. Uniquely and easily solves the biggest problem that beginners face:
      How to know when a game is over, how to know what is alive and what is
      dead; and what the score is.

      2. Uses 9x9 and 19x19 games played by both beginners and professionals
      to clearly explain, in a new way, the principles of even and handicap
      strategies.

      3. Was written especially to enable the reader to organize and
      comprehend the bewildering amount of information now available on the
      Internet.

      4. Has sample 9x9, 13x13 and 19x19 boards that can be copied and
      enlarged for easy, inexpensive playing by beginners using coins, beans
      or other common household objects.
